So, as you can tell, Candyland has had a rough week, to say the least. But today is a new day and after a conversation with the offspring, I'm determined to perk the eff up. When I was little, I wanted to be a rock star, a veterinarian, a Mommy. But when I asked my baby what she wanted to be, she said a spider with hope bursting from her eyes.
I couldn't squash that.
So I told her she'd be the best spider ever if she works hard at it. It made me realize how simple it all really is. Sure, she may never actually be a spider (I hope), but my dream doesn't seem nearly as difficult to obtain now that I know what she's after (a close second, though).
So tell me, friends, when you were little, what did you LONG to be? Are you even close to living that dream now or did it change with time?
